in the senate voted for this.mary landrieu runs in louisiana as if she is some kind of moderate democrat. she is a yes vote for obama on everything. obama has been trying to crush the oil industry. she has done nothing to protect it. the state has been badly damaged by president obama's policies against oil and energy production. mary landrieu stands there and does nothing. she has to run for reelection. not only has she been attacking louisiana's major industry, but she was also the person who gave them this mess of obamacare. there are a whole series of challenges. i think that is why it is possible to get a year's delay in obamacare. i think only focus on the career, at the american people say we can do better. it does leave the door open. some democrats could step back from the mistake they made when they voted for a bill that they had not ever read. host: why do they keep saying the americans did not want the affordable care act when he was elected on that? guest: obama beat romney. there are a whole series of issues on the table there. if it had been a referendum on obama care, romney w
